WHITINSVILLE MAN SENTENCED FOR ECSTASY MANUFACTURING
Boston, MA... A Whitinsville man was sentenced yesterday in federal
court for participating in a conspiracy to manufacture and sell ecstasy.
At the earlier plea hearing, the prosecutor told the Court that, had the case proceeded to trial, the Government’s evidence would have proven that WEST participated in a conspiracy with others, charged in the Indictment, in which they manufactured ecstasy in a basement laboratory underneath a trailer. The prosecutor told the Court that, given the amount of chemicals that the conspirators were buying, they would have been able to produce 20,000 ecstasy tablets in the laboratory.
The case was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration,
with assistance from the Massachusetts and the Connecticut State Police.
